One of the landmarks in Porto

The statue is facing Intercontinental Hotel, Porto. I passed by it on my way down hill and there are bus stops nearby.

All the avenue and square is amazingly charming, but this monument to an important king of Portugal makes it even more beautiful and meaningful.

You will see this as you visit the Avenida dos Aliados. Have a look as you pass by but not worth making a special visit for.

Sincerely it's just a statue in the heart of the city. If you are passing by ok go and see it otherwise it does not worth a visit just to see this statue.

This equestrian statue of Don Pedro IV, standing in the Praca de Liberdade at the foot of Avenida dos Aliados, honors the memory of the tragic heir to the Portuguese throne of Alfonso IV -- his son, Dom Pedro IV (1320-1367). His short life was marred by his disastrous relationship with his father, following his less-than-orthodox marital behavior and attendant... More

We spent a week in Porto, and follow the wandering theory of sightseeing - lets turn left and see what's down there. Suffice to say we came across Dom Pedro nearly every day, somehow! Some cafes and restuarants on the pavements in the area - not as overpriced as you might think. A fabulous guy playing a saxaphone for a... More

Not much to see here, unless you are a history buff. The monument is not impressive at all. However, it is located in one of the city's most central avenues/squares, so it won't hurt to pay it a short visit.

Apparently the initial architecture plan was for the Portuguese to build the equivalent of a mall similar to the Champs Elysee in Paris but they had to settle for a short length between the two ends because of a nunnery that lay in the path and could not be destroyed until the last nun passed on. So the length became... More

Take a walk through the shops and restaurants and head toward the cruise ship area of Porto on the harbor. There you will find a beautiful, beautiful square/plaza highlighted by the monument to Dom Pedro IV. The surrounding buildings are historic in that their architecture is wonderful. I didn't know anything about Dom Pedro, but the views from the monument... More
